Hello, my name is Kathy. I am a 49 year old married mother of two teens. We have a French bulldog named Chuck, a little snake named Roger, and two Gecko lizards...Janet and Lizzie. I enjoy my wonderful family!
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am an accountant and just started a new job after nearly twenty years at my previous workplace. Big changes!
My focus word for 2019 is COMMIT. I am committing to living healthier, getting out more, executing some of the plans I’ve had on the back burner for a while now, and to doing my best to improve my mental health (I get the blues really bad since I lost my mom a couple of years ago).
These are the things I love...

C: Christmas, my favorite holiday; Crochet; Cheerful anything; My Cricut machine; Candles; chocolate (dark is my favorite, but I love it all); the word "COURAGE" (I would like anything with the word on it, as this is my focus word for 2018)

I like mysteries a lot, I am currently reading Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series.
I get most of the books for my to-be-read list from the podcast What Should I Read Next. If you haven't listened to this podcast I would highly recommend it, it is lots of fun.
I wouldn't consider myself a fan of sci-fi or fantasy, but after watching Game of Thrones I have begun to read the series. I am currently on the first book.
Books I've read and enjoyed (that I can think of right now): Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry; Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann; Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel; The Dry by Jane Harper; We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
